Most modern punk bands last about 25 days, upload a few MP3 recordings and vanish into a hard drive somewhere in the cloud. RANDOM CONFLICT kicks off its 25th year with "Tradition is the Enemy," an essential 12-song LP/CD on No Profit Records. This Alabama trio delivers a brutal mix of classic bands like G.B.H. and Motorhead, and contemporary groups like Propagandi and Leftöver Crack, and creates a genuine sound punctuated with elements of Black Flag’s hardcore ferocity, Slayer’s down-tempo nihilism and the Clash’s experimental spirit. "Tradition is the Enemy" is musical aggression with purpose and a lyrical diatribe against mainstream culture and values. Fuck the rules. Disregard expectations. Create and live your own reality.
